The 34th Guild President of Islamic University In Uganda (IUIU) Main Campus Mbale, His Excellency Kakande Hafdwar has called on students to embrace leadership and chase their dreams.
He made the call on Friday while addressing the Student Leaders of Buziga Islamic Institute in Kampala.
According to Kakande, student leaders should be exemplary to their fellow students they lead and utilize the office as entitled but not bragging.
“I need you to take up leadership like a choice but not as a position, because those who take leadership as positions brag around, Understand the leadership in you, because you may be the good leaders which the world will admire to have,’’ Kakande said.
Kakande also told them to embark on Unity as student leaders in case, they’re to achieve their goals as leaders.
‘’ Never divide yourself as leaders, because teamwork leads to success and don’t expect to excel alone, and you will never understand the true leadership when you don’t associate with people,’’ He added.
In his remarks, added by urging student leaders to read hard as the core reason why they came to school and leadership came in as the second option.
‘’If you don’t read you will not be successful, but good leaders are those who excel in Academics, I urge you to balance the two leadership and Academics,’’ he told students.
This was the second drive organized by Islamic University Students’ Union (IUSU) aimed at delivering Motivational, Hopeful, and Courageous talks to High school students to change their mindsets from Negative to Positive.
